Darrell Wyatt Departing Kansas For Texas?

Since the departure of former Texas wide receivers coach Bobby Kennedy for Colorado, speculation has centered around current Kansas wide receiver coach and co-offensive coordinator Darrell Wyatt as a likely replacement. 

More and more that deal appears to be done.  Both an Austin NBC affiliate and the Austin Statesmen are now reporting that Wyatt will accept the coaching position with a formal announcement to come sometime in the near future.

Wyatt was one of the key hires for Turner Gill upon arrival in Lawrence and as Matt Tait with the LJWorld puts it his departure wouldn't be shocking given the job and program that has come calling, but had he stayed it could have been big for what Turner Gill is hoping to accomplish.

As a coach and recruiter, Wyatt is crucial to what Gill wants to get done.

Getting Wyatt to stay would go a long way in solidifying this staff and KU football. And it could help tremendously in the near future should Gill find himself in another battle for one of his assistants with a different BCS blueblood.

With a deal appearing imminent and the last month of the recruiting period beginning to kick into high gear Turner Gill is charged with the task of replacing a key assistant.  Wyatt won't be easy to replace, but finding someone with similar recruiting/coaching connections and abilities is a must.  One name already swirling is former Kansas wide receiver coach and current Rice assistant David Beaty.
